A Texas Matchmaker by Andy Adams (1859 - 1935).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/a-texas-matchmaker-by-andy-adams/
As a boy Andy Adams helped with the cattle and horses on the family farm. During the early 1880s he went to Texas, where he stayed for 10 years, spending much of that time driving cattle on the western trails.
A Texas Matchmaker is a narrative that describes the work of a cowboy on a large southTexas ranch during the late 1800’s. Adams is considered to be one of foremost writers of the life of the real American cowboy.(Summary by Richard Kilmer)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/cache/epub/12919/pg12919-images.html
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

There has been a recent change about the silence at the end of files. All files now need only 5 seconds of silence regardless of file length. Here is the URL that explains it.
